3.15.18 - Missouri State commit. 6-foot-4, 162-pound, long and lean, left-handed pitcher, highly-projectable frame with plenty of room for continued physical development. Ranked No. 15 in the Illinois’ 2018 class. Started on the mound for Belleville East. Drop and drive delivery, strides open and finishes towards third base at times. Arm action is long and deep on the backside, loose and quick out front from a high ¾ slot. Came out early sitting 89-91 mph with his fastball. Erratic overall command of the fastball throughout. When in the zone, late arm-side-run, occasional finish and life through the zone. Settled in anywhere from 86-89 mph after the first two innings. Changeup is best secondary offering. Maintains arm speed, feel, fade action, 76-78 mph. Curveball, inconsistent shape and feel, sweeping action, 66-69 mph. Has electric stuff when in the zone; struck out nine in four innings of work but also walked seven.
3.17.17 - Missouri State recruit. Long, lean, projectable, 6-foot-4, 162-pound left-handed pitcher. High-ceiling southpaw in the 2018 class. Drop and drive delivery with some effort throughout. Arm works long, loose and quick out of a high ¾ slot. Fastball has command in the zone at times, arm-side life, flattens out at times, sat 86-88 mph early, settled in at 84-88. Confidence in his changeup, looks to be his go-to pitch, maintains fastball arm speed, late fade action, ability to throw against left-handed and right-handed hitters, sat 71-74 mph. Curveball was inconsistent; at times flashed depth, 1/7 shape, 69-73 mph. Highly projectable left-handed pitcher in the 2018 class.

10.18.16 - Verbally committed to Missouri State.
